oh THE LAWYERS-----my yiddishe grandma had lots to say about those LITVAKS
No, I have met lots of Jews. Boss, and a lawyer. Never met a Jewish land lord. By the way, all but one was fantastic.
But those simply are not the crazy people. It isn't. Most of the alt-right jew haters, are in places which have almost no Jews at all.
Now you might say some of the left-wing black racists, like Omar, and Jessie Jackson, have met Jews, sure.
But even then, I doubt most of their supporters have met a Jew.
But not only that, most of the Jews in America, that you actually meet, or only Jewish to the extent they were born from a Jew. Most do not practice, or anything.
Them being Jewish, is no more of a factor, than I being German. The orthodox Jews, wearing funny hats, and having curly hair to their neck, are like finding a unicorn.
So I don't see what they would even complain about.
So, why exactly? I've been around lots of lawyers, and I can certainly understand why people don't like many lawyers.
However, what I don't see, is why being Jewish makes a difference. I don't see that non-jewish lawyers are any better, than the jewish ones.
So what's the big deal that your grandma didn't like?
You think MY hat is funny?!
it's actually a kinda joke------hard to explain to a goy thing like you
Many people who hate Jews, or Muslims, or blacks or any other minority that has been scapegoated, haven’t actually met any. Really met them. That is why it is easy for them to buy into stereotypes.
Many of the movers and shakers who have directed our nation are Jewish. So those areas where they do not know Jews in person know them by anything in the media, entertainment, etc. Whether that is positive or negative is up to the person.
the fact that many people online assume I am Jewish probably says all anybody needs to know about me in this regard.
You are confusing the issue by mixing up matters of faith and ethnic origin. You are not a Jew, but you are of German origin. There are people who are Jewish who are of German origin. I do not practice Catholicism or Orthodox Christianity, but I am of Russian/Polish and Irish origin.
I've met a lot of Jews who actually practice. I used to live in a neighborhood with a lot of Jews who would walk to shul on Saturdays, and I was always wished a good Shabbos when I bought my bread and cookies at the kosher market. Jews are no different than Christians in their various levels of practice, and like all of the Abrahamic faiths, there are tons of different sects. Ugly fundamentalism rears it head up in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and probably the other religions as well. There is no consistency.
